View original language description ↓
Agustina, 45, is married to Migdonio Medina with whom she has 3 school-aged children. She works as a cleaner for two families, one of whom she's worked for 3 years, cleaning in the morning, and the other for 4 years, cleaning in the afternoon. Migdonio started a business raising and selling pigs, a business he's been operating for 8 years. Agustina used to help him with the business but then had to find other income. Thanks to the efforts of both, they were able to finish building their house and keep their children in school. With this loan, she wants to buy more pigs.
